The Sun in Aries Opposes Mars Rx: Halfway Point

Today, Mars Rx in Libra opposes the Sun in Aries (at 18 degrees). This is significant for a couple of reasons:

  • It's the halfway point of Mars' Rx cycle
  • The Sun illuminates what Mars Rx has been indirectly expressing

The Sun's light brings clarity. That clarity can stir up all the Mars Rx issues that have been simmering in the Libra section of your chart. Also, the halfway point of the cycle suggests a fullness; a peak has been reached, and with it, an understanding (hopefully).

Because Mars and the Sun are both extroverted energies, today might feature external manifestations of Mars Rx's subjective journey. Disagreements, dramatic actions, turning points in a situation that's been unfolding...these are all possibilities. However, know that what's expressed will be a symptom of something deeper. The Sun is clarifying, but Mars is still Rx, so what comes out will be connected to what you haven't been able to see. 

Don't take it at face value; look deeper.

This will give you more to work with. If you think back over Mars' cycle, you should see a connection between what emerges today, and what started around the time Mars went Rx (March 1st). You can proceed through the latter half of Mars Rx with an idea of what you need to do, the real issues you're dealing with, or a better way to handle the indirect/delayed energy.

If you have planets/angles/Nodes (natal or progressed) from 17-18 degrees of the Cardinal signs, today could be a turning point for you.
